The popular 4-piece of Glen Ross (guitar/vocals), Karen McLean (bass/guitar/vocals), Ants Anema (drums/vocals) and Donald Ferns (guitar/bass/vocals) have been making what they describe as a mix of ‘the Clean, 3D’s and Bailterspace and the diy punk ethic of the early days of Flying Nun records to spew forth their own greasy amalgam of guitar noise, catchy melody, and distinctive weirdness’, and their excellent performances so far certainly point in that direction.
They self released a cd-r ep, before an album proper in 2004, and have been associated with Aucklands’ powertool records label (though their releases have come out on their own ‘Madfishwish’ imprint). The group took what may be a permanent break some time around 2009.
